Coupa, an emerging software vendor of cloud-based spend optimization solutions for mid-size and large enterprises, held its first ever customer summit (Coupa INSPIRE 2013) in San Francisco on April 8-10, 2013. While spend optimization solutions aren't necessarily new, Coupa's approach to expanding the process of managing spend from one limited to the procurement organization to one that engages and involves the entire finance organization demonstrates how social business concepts are changing work in the back office. Currently boasting more than 300 customers in 40 countries, Coupa is doubling the company YOY and adding new products and functionality every quarter. In addition to meeting with the Coupa team at INSPIRE 2013, I also had the opportunity to talk with two of Coupa's partners - KPMG, specifically the Procurement Advisory Practice, and Seal Software, which offers an intriguing Contract Discovery and Analysis solution.
